NEW Limited Editions from Fenton Gift Shop. . .

We are pleased to offer these new Limited Edition selections for pre-orders. Each piece features a hand painted design and will be signed, numbered and dated 2018 by one of our talented designers. The Iceberg Paperweight was made by Mosser Glass. The other Limited Edition pieces were handcrafted by Mosser, using the Fenton moulds, exclusively for the Fenton Gift Shop.


Michelle Kibbe created this wonderful scene for our 8.75" Opal Satin Vase. Her hand painted design features a gray squirrel carefully climbing onto a pine tree branch complete with pine cones. The details on the squirrel are so true to life that you may expect to hear a warning “kuk, kuk” or a flick of a tail. Note the "alert" stance of its posture. Michelle used delicate bands and soft golden-toned accents to provide a lovely frame effect for her scene. Each Gray Squirrel Vase is $160. Did you know. . . There are more than 200 species of squirrels in the world. The Eastern gray squirrel may be seen in parks, backyards, or in a forest in the eastern half of the United States. This squirrel plays an important role in "seed dispersal". When winter approaches, squirrels bury their food in several locations. Since they usually hide more food than they will eat, the buried seeds and nuts sprout and begin to grow in these locations the following spring.

Michelle Kibbe loves cats. . . and so do we, so what better way to celebrate the upcoming "Halloween" or Autumn season than with an adorable black cat with golden eyes depicted on a 4" Opal Iceberg Paperweight! Just look at the hand painted detail on those eyes! Michelle added a golden-orange background... could it be a Harvest moon? Front and back views of this paperweight, made at Mosser Glass, are shown in the above photo. Each Golden Eyes Iceberg Paperweight is $80.

To pre-order these Limited Editions, contact Fenton Gift Shop at 1-800-319-7793, ext. 342 or email: purchasing@fentongiftshop.com. Include the names of the items you want to purchase in the subject line. Include your full name and daytime phone number so we may follow-up on your request.

Our 10.5" Opal Satin Hurricane Candle Lamp is the perfect canvas for Kim Barley's scene of the head of a wolf superimposed over a winter scene of birch and pine trees and snow-covered landscape. The landscape encircles the shade of this Hurricane Candle Lamp.

 

Kim's hand painted details are meticulously executed. She captures the mesmerizing blue eyes of the wolf. The details on the landscape scene are beautiful.

 

The Hurricane Candle Lamp is a shape that has been included in the Fenton line for many decades. It is 10.5" tall overall. The shade measures 9.125" tall. The candle base will accommodate either a 3.75" dia. candle or a 1" dia. taper candle to create a heartwarming glow. We suggest a battery-operated candle. Each Winter Wolf Hurricane Candle Lamp is $150.

 

Pre-orders for the Gray Squirrel Vase, Winter Wolf Hurricane Candle Lamp and Golden Eyes Iceberg Paperweight will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Monday, October 1, 2018.

Kim Barley took one look at her final design on this adorable Black Satin Sitting Cat Figurine and decided to name it "Wolfie". We think it suits this popular 3.5" cat figurine perfectly! "Wolfie" sports white paws and a fur coat hand painted in tones of gray, white and shades of golden yellow. Note those marvelous black rimmed eyes. Each Wolfie Sitting Cat Figurine is $80.

Above: Robin Spindler continues her popular "Pumpkin Patch" design on our 8" Opal Satin Chessie Cat Covered Box.
Appropriately named "Pumpkin Patch Dreamer", Robin's hand painted design features a sleeping kitten nestled in a blanket covered with falling autumn leaves. Large pumpkins and vines adorn the back side. Robin added colorful autumn leaves and acorns on the lid.

 

Chessie" was a popular cat character used as a symbol of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway. This artwork was used with their slogan that when traveling on their railway you would "sleep like a kitten". Fenton created this item especially for the C & O Railway company. Each Pumpkin Patch Dreamer Chessie Cat Covered Box is $150.

 

Right and below: Robin's "Pumpkin Patch" theme also continues on our 11.5" Opal Satin Vase. Robin named this hand painted design "Pumpkin Patch Buddy". Large orange pumpkins and two black cats are featured on the front with more pumpkins and falling leaves encircling the vase. The leaves appear to be changing colors as they flutter down from the sky. The photos below show more views of this impressive vase.

Note those big blue eyes of the "tuxedo" cats! One cat is peeking over the top of two pumpkins at its buddy as it wanders by. . . perhaps getting ready to pounce and surprise the feline friend!
Did you know: Famous "tudexo cats" include Felix, Sylvester the Cat. The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss also features a tuxedo cat. They’ve even been the subject of poem that was turned into a famous Broadway musical — Cats! Each Pumpkin Patch Buddy Vase is $230.

 

Pre-orders for the Wolfie Sitting Cat Figurine, Pumpkin Patch Dreamer Chessie Cat Covered Box and the Pumpkin Patch Buddy Vase will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Wednesday, October 3, 2018.

end at 2 p.m. (ET) on Wednesday, October 3rd. Items featured this week. . .

 

The Black Capped Chickadee is one of America's best loved birds, and Fenton artist
Michelle Kibbe has certainly done justice to them on this one-of-a-kind hand painted vase (10.75" tall) in Opal Satin glass. Chickadees are often seen in small groups, and Michelle's meticulous hand painting has captured three of them with marvelous details as they perch amidst pine boughs laden with pinecones. We can almost hear their distinctive voices ... "chick-a-dee-dee-dee." Note the carefully airbrushed back-ground hues and the subtle purple buds within the pine needles. Also note the gold bands and gold accents at the top and bottom of the vase; the gold accents were done with a special sponge technique.

Here's a great chance to acquire a bit of Fenton Art Glass history. Made from original negatives in the Fenton Archives, these two 8x10 photos show barrels of Fenton glass being loaded on to the Queen City sternwheeler on the Ohio River about 1907-1908. At this time, Fenton Art Glass shipped glassware to some cities along the Ohio and Mississippi rivers because those cites were more accessible by boat than by rail. Barrels of packed glassware would be carted from the glass factory by the wagonload to the riverbank in Williamstown, West Virginia. Once the sternwheeler was tied up, the gangplank would be lowered, and the crew would roll the barrels up the gangplank to the deck. One 8x10 photo shows the full length of the Queen City sternwheeler, and passengers have gathered on the upper decks to watch the loading begin (the railroad bridge in Marietta, Ohio, is visible in the background). The other 8x10 photo was taken a few minutes later, and we can see where the barrels are being secured on the deck for their journey. This close-up photo shows Fenton Art Glass Co. founder Frank L. Fenton (in light suit and dark bowler hat) standing on the lower right corner of the gangplank and watching the crew load the barrels. The Queen City sternwheeler was based in Cincinnati, Ohio, but riverboat records show the Queen City on the Mississippi River as well as the Ohio River. These 8x10 photos are high-quality black-and-white prints on a special metallic paper to heighten contrast and shipped in plastic sleeve for extra protection.

Here's a great opportunity to own a piece of Fenton history! In the mid-1960s, the Fenton Art Glass Co. office area and the Fenton Gift Shop underwent considerable remodeling. Attractive brick facing was constructed on exterior areas, and the iconic "Clarence" figure was mounted above the gift shop entrance. Colored glass panels, made by skilled glassworkers at Fenton, were placed around the entrance door to the Fenton Gift Shop and around the entrance door to the reception area of the Fenton Art Glass Company. Demolition of the Fenton factory was completed, but the colored glass panels have been saved. This colored glass panel measures 11.75" tall by 8.75" wide. We call this color "amberina," because the pressed glass panel was made with ruby glass and only the thicker central area has the red hues characteristic of ruby. There are a few minor chips near the edges on the back side of this panel. This colored glass panel has been signed by Fenton Art Glass Co. president George Fenton and by Fenton Gift Shop president Randy Fenton, and a certificate of authenticity is also included. Included in the photos is Jim Wingrove. Jim was the "gatherer" as part of the glass shop (Sonny Burdette was the presser) that made these glass panels. Jim is shown pointing to one of the panels in the door frame of the Fenton Gift Shop.
These Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. (ET) on Wednesday, October 3rd, 2018.
